Until now, there are still many engineers working on A.I. !!!
What exactly Siri can do?
choose a movie

set alarm, timer
Let's take an example~
Help disabled people access high technology easily
Help disabled people integrate into the society easily.

impaired physical and motor skills
Nowadays limitations of A.I.
Cannot exactly simulate human's mind
Uncertain whether A.I. could solve problem completely
Some applications of A.I. may be limited by the Internet connection, databases information or other technical problems
Problems to the society brought by A.I.
Specialized artificial intelligence applications will result in
significant unemployment
(Martin Ford,author of "The Lights in the Tunnel: Automation, Accelerating Technology and the Economy of the Future")
AI research
devalues human life
( Joseph Weizenbaum,American computer scientist)
Help disabled people
Entertain human
Construct a simper and better life
Train communication skills
Lead to
significant unemployment
Devalues human life
Whether A.I. brings
happiness or sadness to our society??
It should depend on how human use it.
If we can use it in a smart way, we can construct a better world!!

At each step, computer assumes that player A is trying to maximize the chances of A winning.

While on the next turn player B is trying to minimize the chances of A winning.

The minimax strategy helps find the best move, by working backwards from the end of the game and analyze the probability of winning.

How does the system works?
